I have an HP Pavilion dv7 laptop running windows 7, 64-bit. I am using the Plugable UD-160-A USB 2.0 Universal Docking Station. When my laptop is not being used and is in sleep mode, the extended display (HP 2311x) goes dark also. The problem is that the Monitor Status dialog box stays on and will constantly scroll through the DVI/HDMI/VGI settings looking for a signal. How can I stop the scrolling from happening continuously? When the laptop is not in use, I would expect the monitor to go to sleep also.
On the Monitor Status box, the Auto-Switch Source is On and the default source is DVI.
Thanks for your help.
